Section 1 — Registrant’s Business and Operations
Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
On October 6, 2011, Zayo Group, LLC (“Zayo”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with 360 Networks Corporation, a British Columbia corporation; 360 Networks (fiber holdco) Ltd., a British Columbia corporation; and 360 Networks (fiber subco) Ltd., a British Columbia corporation (collectively, the “Sellers”).
Upon the close of the transaction contemplated by the Agreement, Zayo will acquire 100 percent of the outstanding capital stock of 360networks Holdings (USA) Inc., (“360networks”) a Nevada corporation and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Sellers (the “Acquisition”). The purchase price, subject to certain adjustments at closing and post-closing, is $345,000,000. The Agreement is subject to customary closing conditions (including regulatory approval) and provides for customary representations, warranties, covenants and agreements, including, among others, that each party will use commercially reasonable efforts to complete the acquisition.
In connection with the Agreement, Zayo has obtained a debt commitment letter that, subject to customary closing conditions, commits certain lenders to provide financing for Zayo in an amount sufficient to permit Zayo, together with cash on hand, to make all payments required to be made to the Sellers in connection with the closing of the Acquisition.
360networks operates over 18,000 route miles of intercity and metro fiber network across 22 states and British Columbia. 360networks’ intercity network interconnects over 70 markets across the central and western United States, including 23 Zayo fiber markets and a number of new markets such as Albuquerque, Bismarck, Des Moines, San Francisco, San Diego and Tucson. In addition to its intercity network, 360networks operates over 800 route miles of metropolitan fiber networks across 26 markets, including Seattle, Denver, Colorado Springs, Omaha, Sacramento, and Salt Lake City. The resulting combined fiber network will total over 42,000 route miles and nearly two million fiber miles.
On October 7, 2011, Zayo issued a press release announcing the foregoing agreement. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1
Item 9.01. Financial Statements and Exhibits.
(d) Exhibits. The following exhibit is furnished with this Form 8-K:
